A Jedi Knight during the last years of the Galactic Republic, Bashinan Hodizwen was trained by the Jedi Order in the ways of the Force. Pursuing the teachings of the Jedi Consular during independent study as a Knight, Hodizwen became a noted Lore Keeper, and was considered a scholar by many within the Order.
During the Separatist Crisis, conflicting reports emerged regarding the identity of the Confederacy of Independent Systems' leader, the mysterious Count Dooku of Serenno. While the High Council remained tight-lipped on the subject, reporters from the HoloNet News network were able to interview Hodizwen, who gave brief insight into former Jedi Master Dooku's personal interests. Citing Dooku's fascination with antiquities from across the galaxy as reason for Dooku's appearance in the Gree Enclave, Hodizwen did not comment further on the Count's sudden return from self-imposed exile.
